“For anyone looking to learn, refresh or improve their mountain biking skills The Cycling Co. is the place to go. After a ten year sabbatical from mountain biking I decided it was time to get back on the bike, but before doing so thought it would be best to look into some lessons. A coworker told me about Adam Walker up at Bear Mountain.
I was initially a bit intimidated as the website talks of National and Provincial coaching. Do not let that discourage you. I contacted Adam and signed up for a three hour individual lesson and can’t say enough about how awesome it was. Adam is personable, friendly and clearly knows his stuff. He helped me correct my riding posture which in turn corrected a wrist/hand issue that I have been experiencing my whole riding history.
Yesterday Adam covered invaluable areas of riding; riding postures, core skills needed to not only hit the trails but develop further. We also spent some time going over shifting to optimize energy usage. Adam’s teaching style involved demonstrating a skill and then coaching me through practical application. His feedback is both positive and encouraging.
For the last part of the lesson we went riding and implemented what we had covered with Adam offering advice and encouragement along the way. I am once again stoked to hit all types of trails and get back into mountain biking.”
